Hotrod Basics

Doc here,

That is what the Hotrodding basics was set up for.....More base questions, answered by more patient folk...for the beginner rodder...

Whether or not they start out there is their choice..You get a few 16 year olds (not too many) that jump in there and say: " I've been wrenching since I was 14..." Stand back I'm a Pro..."

"Yeah...me too..that only puts you 38 years behind me....!"

How many engines have you actually worked on?...and the one's made by revell DON"T count....

Doc

He he, my first engine was a Revell I think, the clear see through block and heads with twinkling lights for plugs. Ran great when I fired it up but it destroyed itself......ran out of peanut oil I figure, should have used lard for break-in, but I was young and didn't know...

We could have lots;

Ford learner and pro
Dodge learner and pro
Chev learner and pro
A couple of ricer sections
Maybe a European section or five.

Some kind of split may not be a bad idea, new theads come in here so fast that they, unfortunatly, push others off of the first page. Because of this some threads get less attention than they need.

I agree, seeing as how I was the victim of such action on many occasions. Some kind of split would get my vote as well.

I thought of this almost a year ago. I planned on saving threads that were an example so I could make a good "case", but I never got around to it.

You can't go to page 2?............and beyond?

Don't think we need more than 1 engine forum. Most questions are answered pretty quickly and accurately now.

Of course, this thread is wasting valuable engine space...................

I can, but like most people(probably) I don't. I browse through the front page and move on to another forum.

I only get on here during the week so when I jump on Monday morning the engine forum is usually pretty lengthy, but I generally go through them all just in case. You could break it down quite a ways but that is just more searching for someone that doesn't know where to look.
I too started working on engines at a young age.....unfortuneately I took a few years off so I'm learning all over again and most if not all of you are light years ahead of me.

I try to go back and see if I missed anything, and even go through the search function, but you still miss some.

Not sure if multiple engine sections is a good thing, maybe if there was just a way to have people search for something before they post a question. I know I've seen the same topic or question asked multiple times in a few day period. Sometimes by the same person.

It's easier to make a new post than to sift through the search results for an answer to a particular question.

I do not see any reason to have two or more engine sections. There a re roughly 960 pages compiled and if all duplicated questions and responses were removed, this would probably be reduced to about 100 pages. Basically, I have been on here for 4+ years, and have seen the same questions over and over and over and over, with basically the same answers, many times over and over and over. Newbies either are not interested in reviewing these 960 pages before jumping in or are not computer literate enough to use the knowledge base search (my attempts turn up few results when I have a general ideal as to what I am looking for).

Having said this, if we were to plunge into different sections, then I would strongly urge going to separate sections for Ford, Chevy, Olds, Pontiac, Buick, Cadillac, MOPAR and Others. You could further break these sections into Flathead, Y Block, Small Block, Big Block, Windsor, Cleveland etc for Ford etc, etc.

Naaah, lets leave well enough alone.
